Smartphone tech inspires design for smart, unattended ground sensor

Smartphone Technology Inspires Design for Smart Unattended Ground Sensor May 29, 2013 Commercial smartphone processes to aid development of air, sea and undersea unmanned military sensors as well DARPA’s Adaptable Sensor System (ADAPT ) program aims to transform how unattended sensors are developed for the military by using an original design manufacturer (ODM) process similar to that of the commercial smartphone industry. The goal is to develop low-cost, rapidly updatable intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) sensors in less than a year, a marked improvement to the current three-to-eight year development process. The program has developed the core ADAPT hardware and software package using a customized Android Operating System (OS) to provide capabilities common to all ISR sensors. The program recently completed its first reference design and developed applic...
